There is always tomorrow. Increase the amount you wager when you are winning, decrease when you are losing. Be flexible in your thinking.

Do not be a slave to one type of handicapping system or school of thought.

For example if the lottery game determines that you win 20 times your bet it will display whatever slot machine symbols pay So it is a clever illusion. A small number of sports betters beat the games, in the long run, by arduous study, use of computers, etc. Are there bettors who use these methods to become long term winners at beating the horse races?
Betting on the horses is one of my weakest areas when it comes to gambling. However I know of no way to have a consistent edge or any person who is successful as a professional racetrack bettor.
